The Shenandoah-Potomac Garden Council is presenting its 65th House and Garden Tour at the end of April. The Council had suspended its signature event for the past three years and the members are eager to decorate and show off the seven houses on the 2023 tour. The Garden Council is an affiliate of the West Virginia Garden Club and comprises nine local clubs in the Eastern Panhandle: Berk-Mar, Dolley Madison, Gateway, Norborne, Olde Berkeley, Perennial, Shenandoah, Windflower, and Wizard Clip. The proceeds from this annual event are used to fund beautification projects organized by these clubs in the local community.
